As Mark said, "?" is not a valid format.

In the case that you described, the way to make it work is to create a group
of uses who you know can write to the repository and then provided write
access to that group (with the '@group = rw' syntax).
I don't think the ACL file has a format/attribute that can apply to
*any* authenticated users. Those users have to be listed out in a group. If
you want anonymous (non-authenticated) users to have read access and any
authenticated users to have write access, then, if there is a way it has to
be somewhere within the Apache configuration and not in the ACL file. I am
not an expert at Apache and so I don't know how to do that.

I would like to know more about this, if this can be achieved in some way.
